  • Players want more "swag" from Prince.

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...-on-the-field/

    “You’ve got me and Terrell (Thomas), and we’re going to keep beating it into him,” Webster said, via Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. “And (safeties Antrel Rolle and Kenny Phillips), those guys came from Miami and they had it there. So we’re going to keep on driving it in. He could use a little bit (of an edge) from us. He’s taking it in and he’s going to put it into his game. And I think it’s working for him.”

    Not well enough to avoid a trip into the tub, it would seem.

    You can display that confidence quietly without losing any effectiveness, though. Swag conjures up images of Deion Sanders dancing his way down the field, an image that Amukamara certainly doesn’t fit. Neither do plenty of other cornerbacks who have played at a high level in the NFL, for that matter.
    I personally prefer the Eli on field persona over the Rolle one, but that's me.

    Swag is part of a person's personality (and currently a stupid fad).

    I don't think he needs to change his personality to become an effective cornerback. He was recognized as one of the best CBs in his class without having.... swag. He just needs to get comfortable.

      They're right about one thing......it's part of where you went to school......Nebraska is all class and doesn't tolerate "swwwaaaagggg" where other programs do.

        Know the easiest way to do that? Leave the kid alone. Quick, someone needs to yell it into a camera and post it on youtube!

            While he's not vocal and confident sounding, prince is pretty good in support on the run game. It takes a tough corner to really get off blocks and stick his nose in there.

              Agreed. I'd rather Prince be more reserved and tough as nails when he's making a tackle, then be a showboat with false bravado that shies away from tackles like Deion.

                Could you imagine Eli acting like Phillip Rivers? I cant. And it wouldnt make him better. Prince is humble. Let him be.

                  I agree. You can't make a player something they aren't. Being him got him where he is.

                      You know what I would like to see. I would have liked to see one of these guys give Mark Bavarro mess about not having swag and trying to throw him in a tub. I doubt any of them would ever try it with Eli Manning either. A joke is a joke and hazing goes on all the time but like I used to tell me teammates that would carried away and continually pick on one person is to not be surprised if he gets pushed too much one day and splits your head open with a hammer.Prince made his bones by the way he showed up and oerformed for us in the postaeason, he will get better. His personality is his his personality and he will be fine. I much prefer Eli Mannings way of carrying himself a lot more than Antrelle Rolles.

                        Good post.


                        “Basically just stay with your man,” cornerback Janoris Jenkins said. “Follow him everywhere you go. Even if he goes to the bathroom, follow him.”

                          Surely there's a DB joke to be made.

                          Wordplay swag.

                            they prolly want him to trash talk more and be more gritty during press, and have more comfidence in his game. I think he had some of it in nebraska until he got abused in that osu game against justin blackmon, that's what prolly humbled him more, sometimes a bad experience will do that to you. So I guess he just goes about his business more quiet and humble nowadays which is cool as long as he makes plays

                              Eli has his own kind of "Swag". It is quiet, you think I look dumb, but I will pick your defense apart in the 4th quarter to beat your *** kind of "swag". Prince needs to develop the right kind of "swag" for his personality which hopefully is the I'll speak softly but pick off/break up your passes all day long kind of "swag".
